So I just went downstairs to ask a colleague "What's the best way to transfer a couple hundred GB of data from Storage System X to Remote Machine Y?"

The answer I got was, I would argue, the very best possible answer to this question:

"Just send me email and I'll do it."

YAY!

Spaced S2: the current tentative plan is to take over K&T's house again one of the weekends near the end of June; still figuring out details.

Dunno when for KFP. I still need to see the new Indiana Jones movie.

While making myself crazy sometimes. In my case, most of my coworkers are so technophobic, offering to do things properly the first time just saves myself time and frustration later.

Oh, I know how that goes. There've been a number of things I've done because it was just plain easier to spend half an hour and do it myself than to try and walk someone through it. (And I just couldn't let them take a week to do it their way.)
